From Library Journal:

This is the true account of a World War II rifle company. Formed of men from all parts of the country, Company K, 333rd Infantry, 84th Division saw more than one hundred days of combat, through the Battle of the Bulge to the Elbe River. Thirty-six men died, and nearly two hundred more were casualties by the time the war ended. Unusually well written, this account, as told in the words of the survivors, shows the side of war at which Keith Winston's V . . . Mail: letters of a World War II combat medic ( LJ 9/15/85) could only hint. The authors, former company officers, have drawn the battle and postwar experiences of these men and their families into one smooth, flowing narrative. Highly recommended for most collections. George F. Scheck, Naval War Coll. Lib., Newport, R.I.

From Publishers Weekly:

Company K of the 84th Division reached Europe in early November 1944, five months after D-Day, and was quickly ordered to Germany, where the Allied armies were advancing against furious resistance. Two members of the company present a vivid picture of the fierceness of front-line fighting in WW II as they follow the unit from Geilenkirchen through the battle for Wurm, back to Geilenkirchen and through the Battle of the Bulge to occupation duty. The authors avoid sentimental cliches in their depiction of a group of triumphant citizen-soldiers. Readers who are not veterans of Company K, however, may find the final chapters, about the post-war lives of these ex-GIs, anticlimactic.
